"I contacted the Calgary Tutoring Center and received a very quick reply! I urgently needed a crash study session for a tough course, CHEM 351 (the final exam), and that was arranged very quickly. I was very stressed and I was finding it hard to focus, and the tutor who worked with me definitely helped with that. While I do not recommend last-minute cramming sessions, the four hour session helped to reinforce what I already knew, and helped me to understand how best to approach the types of questions that would be on the exam (we had practise tests to work with, of course). I definitely recommend this company to anyone who needs help studying for a tough exam, since they respond quickly and their tutors are very knowledgeable and professional."
"Near the middle of the 2011/2012 school year we began looking for a tutor for our child who was in grade 9. Without any recommendations we used the internet and were fortunate to come across Calgary Tutoring Centre. We spoke with Alex who we found to be responsive to our child's tutoring needs. The tutor, a very energetic university student, made an immediate connection with our child. School grades showed a marked improvement and more importantly the tutor taught our child learning and studying techniques to assist in the school years to come. We would highly recommend the Calgary Tutoring Centre, we are very grateful to them."
"Being our first experience with CTC, I did not know what to expect or how they were going to find the perfect match for our son. In a very short period of time, CTC not only found the perfect match for our son, but also brought up our son's self-esteem to encourage him and get great grades on PAT's this year. His whole demeanour and confidence had changed in a very short period of time. We are very happy with the results that CTC has helped us accomplish, and the best part is that our son has started to get his confidence back in the subjects he struggles with. We are looking forward to CTC being involved with our son's high school years as well."
"With six weeks to go before the grade 12 Diploma Exams, my son was struggling in school with Chemistry 30. He was extremely stressed as he needed this course for University entrance. I found Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd. on the internet. Alex got back to me immediately and we discussed my concerns. We had a tutor come to our home for 2 hours per week. The tutor was excellent and understood what my son needed for review, study and to improve his overall mark. I am so pleased to say that my son's mark went up beyond our expectations. My son has been accepted into the University of Calgary. I highly recommend Calgary Tutoring Centre and credit the tutor for working so well with my son. This is a well run professional service!"
"I highly recommend the Calgary Tutoring Centre services to any parents searching for extra help for their kids. They helped my daughter excel in Chemistry 20 and Math 20. Because of the helpful and knowledgeable tutors, her understanding in these subjects increased as well as her interest in them. Thank you Alex for all of your help!"
"Calgary Tutoring Centre has been a great asset to our children's academic pursuits. Alex has always provided us with top quality tutors that have become an integral addition to our children's education. Each tutor has been professional, pleasant and flexible enough to work within the confines of our children's busy schedules. We look forward to continuing our association with Calgary Tutoring Centre again this fall.
"We have used Calgary tutoring Centre for the past 3 years, and have been thrilled with the excellent tutors and the excellent results my children have achieved! We found ourselves needing a tutor half way into the semester, I called Alex and within 1 day I had a wonderful gal help us out. CTC is very reasonably priced and have excellent tutors that are very flexible in their availability! We will again used CTC this year! Thanks"
"We were in a crunch to have our daughter pick up some last minute training in Math prior to grade 12 examinations; Calgary Tutoring Center supplied the appropriate training in a professional and timely manner. The teacher was excellent in understanding the needs for our daughter."
"A very professional and effective tutoring service with good tutors and, prompt response to any queries."
"Our daughter was enrolled in on-line tutoring at the Calgary Tutoring Centre and we all found it both beneficial and convenient. The Tutor was available whenever she needed him and there was no rush to be finished at a certain time. On-line tutoring worked well for our busy family where time is a scarce commodity. We didn't have to rush out the door to meet a Tutor in Calgary. Her Tutor was very flexible, helpful and accommodating, she easily arranged appointments with him. I would strongly recommend on-line tutoring for any busy family who are looking for tutoring."
October 2009 I contacted The Calgary Tutoring Centre for extra help for my son in Pure Math 10. Rather than my son meeting in person with a tutor, Alex had asked if my son would be interested in trying out on-line tutoring. We purchased the tablet and tutoring commenced within that week. This set-up worked out amazing. No more driving on snowy nights or icy roads for us, nor for the Tutor, my son was set up in the comforts of his bedroom. Tutoring happened when scheduled as there were never issues with driving."
"We had set dates for Alex to tutor my son, however when my son required additional help due to an upcoming unit test or quiz, my son contacted Alex, made arrangements for log-in time and the lessons commenced. These instructions were at most times a quick 10 minutes.. no one needed to drive anywhere for a 10 minute lesson. Here's the great part, my sons mark in Math went from the high 50s to mid 80s. My sons on-line tutoring went so well that I have recommended the on-line tutoring offered by The Calgary Tutoring Centre to many people."
"Participating in the online tutoring program was great! I didn't have to worry about finding my way any where in a specific amount of time. It brought my math mark up which allowed me to get into Mount Royal University. The program was run very well, and organized. I enjoyed working with my tutor because he made learning fun, and easy for me. If I didn't understand something then he would change the way he explained it, as to make it easier. I would highly recommend online tutoring to anyone, and would even do it again if I needed to."
"Alex was a very helpful tutor to me for Pure Math 20, my entire life I had generally struggled with Math and was never the best student. I was in the applied track for Grade 10 and after completing Applied Math 10 with a 70% I decided to switch into Pure Math 20. I found it exceptionally harder and was getting 50% to 60% for the first two units, after I started having online sessions with Alex I was able to understand the basic concepts more clearly and he always had useful techniques and strategies to show me. For the rest of the year my marks continued to increase and I gained a better understanding of Math as a whole; I even started to enjoy it! Even though the tutoring was over the phone and we communicated through an application on the computer it was not an impediment and I received a 94% on the final exam. I finished Pure Math 20 with a mark of 85% and I am planning on taking Calculus in Grade 12. Although I personally had to study hard outside of the tutoring it was very helpful to have these sessions so that I could understand many concepts and how certain questions worked as there are many different ways to find an answer. Alex was a very friendly and knowledgeable tutor and the entire experience changed my attitude on how I view Math! After I finish Grade 12 I am planning to take a Physics major in University because I am not afraid of performing poorly in Mathematics anymore."
"The Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd. has proved to be an incredible tool in ensuring my daughter's academic success. I have used this service several times and I am very pleased with the professionalism and sheer commitment the tutors display towards their students. This service has helped my daughter immensely and I personally give it my highest recommendation."
"We have been so happy with the CTC (Calgary Tutoring Center). Our daughter was struggling with Chemistry 30 and needed the support that we couldn't give her. With one call to CTC, we had a one on one qualified tutor come to our home( not having to drive was a bonus) and they personalized my daughters learning needs according to what she needed to learn in regards to the school curriculum. Another bonus was that we only needed someone weekly and there was no two hour minimums like other tutoring companies. The tutor was always on time and was genuinely interested in helping my daughter keep her Honours average of 85% or better. My daughter has been accepted to the U of C and we credit CTC tutor for assisting her with her Chemistry. I would recommend CTC to anyone who needs it!"
"Our son was having difficulty in math in his first year of junior high. We decided to hire a tutor after our attempts at helping our son did not seem to be effective. By June, our son's math grade had improved by 10% but, more importantly, his understanding of the basic math concepts had improved. Our tutor was professional and mature and Calgary Tutoring Centre staff is always responsive to any questions we may have had along the way. Thank you, we are looking forward to using the services again this year."
"After few weeks of chemistry class in Grade 11 my son was just about to quit chemistry.After talking to him we decided to get help and get some tutorial lessons.Contacting Alex at Calgary Tutoring Centre everything was ready and started within a few days.Having tutorials done once to twice per week for the last semester was the best thing we could do.My son was able to get his confidence back and pass the chemistry.In the hardest Unit (Stoich)he got 74%.Good job Miriam. Thank you Alex."
"I have found the services of Calgary Tutoring Centre to be both professional and well organized. Alex always responds quickly and his tutors are punctual, knowledgeable and effective. I would not hesitate to recommend the services of Calgary Tutoring Centre."
"I found Calgary Tutoring Centre by fluke. I have no regrets. My daughter was struggling with math 10c and since she started with CTC, her marks have increased drastically. The efficiency, quality of tutoring and communication with Alex and tutors has been outstanding. We will keep going on through high school."
"We contacted Calgary Tutoring when our consciencious Grade 9 daughter became concerned about her understanding and the teaching of Grade 9 Science at her school. We very pleased with Nicky and the service provided by Calgary Tutoring. It was so easy to get started. CT organized a tutor for us promptly and she was always on time, pleasant and very knowledgable, engourgaing and inspiring to our Grade 9 daughter who alwyas looked forward to her sessions with Nicky. BTW Charlotte got 93% on the Gr. 9 Science PAT and a course overall average of 96%. She also received the award for higherst average in Grade 9 (avg 96%)."
"We accessed Calgary Tutoring Centre in order to support our daughters' learning needs in high school Math and Physics. The tutor was helpful, professional, supportive and flexible with her time. The one on one tutoring was extremely beneficial in helping her to really understand the concepts, not just memorize them. We will continue to utilize this excellent service for our daughter as needed through high school."
"We chose Calgary Tutoring Centre on the recommendation of a friend. Our son Nicholas received tutoring for 4 high school math and science courses and he achieved excellent marks in both subjects. The tutors were easy to contact, prompt, friendly, attentive and earnest in their instruction.
As parents we are grateful that Nick had another resource, outside of school, to draw upon. The support of the Calgary Tutoring Centre allowed him to have a more confident and relaxed attitude to school generally. "
"I accidentally bumped into Alex's tutoring website and have been using their services for my daughter for grade 11 and 12 in Math 30, Physics and Chemistry.
Although I have not met Alex in person, I do find Alex a very approachable, caring and personal person from the phone conversations I have had with him. He responds and answers my questions speedily and always tries his best to provide me the best. The tutors that I have for the above subjects have been very reliable, punctual, easy to get along with and they all have done a fabulous job.
My daughter has always been an honour roll student and one must be wondering as to why I would need Alex's services. Sometimes in school, my daughter did not have very good understanding on certain sections of the subjects taught by the teachers and here's when Alex's tutors come in whom we find them to be extremely helpful in enlightening those grey areas. Most of the time after each session, she feels enlightened with the explanation and conversation with the tutors and thus motivated her."
"For the past two years, our son has benefited greatly from the educational support provided by Calgary Tutoring Centre. We utilized the tutoring service for several different high school senior level courses and found the supplied tutors to be knowledgeable and supportive in all subjects. When initially contacting the Calgary Tutoring Centre, Alex took the time to discuss and understand our son's academic challenges and requirements. Although our son's grades were always acceptable, we wanted a tutor that could help coach our son on improved study habits while providing extra training on specific courses. As well, we wanted someone closer in age to our son, who would encourage questions and concerns, while being able to relate to daily school and learning experiences. The tutors provided by Alex fulfilled our expectations, relating well with our son, and, making the weekly learning experience beneficial and enjoyable."
"I have been thrilled with the CTC. I have found that there standard to quality service is far beyond most businesses. They take great care and pride in ensuring that their tutors are high quality and dependable. Any time I have requested a different tutor, their response has been quick and positive. I would recommend anyone looking for a tutor for one of their children to consider CTC. I can also attest to the fact that they did have a significant impact on my child's marks."
"The Calgary Tutoring Centre has been a great asset to my daughter. She was struggling with Pure Math 10, to the point where she was failing. After getting in contact with the centre, Alex was able to provide a wonderful tutor, who was reliable, professional, and able to communicate with my daughter in a manner that was easy for her to understand.
After only 2 months with the tutor, my daughter was able to pass her math with a high enough mark to be able to get into Pure Math 20! We hope to continue with the Calgary Tutoring Centre for rest of my daughters high school years.
Thank you to you and your staff."
"The Calgary Tutoring Centre was recommended to us by our son's school and in our experience went well beyond 'just providing extra math assistance'. It is our view that The Centre was key and instrumental towards his successful completion of Grade 12 Pure Math with a Final Exam mark higher than we had thought possible. Commencing with a thorough discussion and review of our Son's needs/special requirements with the owner, through his selection of a suitable tutor and the hours logged with her - were all very positive and productive experiences which quickly developed into a mentoring style relationship. Our tutor was very timely, thorough, patient and flexible in terms of availability toward the review required for him to be able to approach unit tests with confidence and be able to manage the curriculum. Another service offered was a 15 hour final exam review of the material covered throughout the year in mid-June which was extremely helpful and we believe resulted in our ultimate goal - that being his passing grade on both his school and Final Exam year-end marks."
"Dorothy helped my son with both Pure Math 20 and Physics 20. My son was new to tutoring. Dorothy is a positive, well informed tutor. She even brought him some extra material to study from. Many times he had an "ahaa" moment. He said that she explained things better than the teacher. Without her my son would have surely failed. Instead, he passed and felt great about it. I know we will see her again in the fall for Pure Math 30."
"The Calgary Tutoring Centre provided us with a great tutor who was always prompt and ready to help our daughter with any question or area of math. Her marks rose from 66% to the final exam of 85%. We will continue to use their tutoring services whenever the need arises."
"Our daughter was working hard in Pure Math 20 and was finding the course quite challenging. A friend recommended Calgary Tutoring Centre so we gave their one-on-one tutoring services a try and they really helped us out!"
"We have used the services of the Calgary Tutoring Center for the past 2 years for assistance with Math 10 and 20. Our Tutor was friendly, punctual, and very qualified. The end result was successful and we will be requesting their services again for Math 30."
"My experience with Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd has been a very positive one. Alex's suggestions and the time he took to explain the services the Centre provided was excellent He was very helpful in setting up a "game plan" for my son. The tutor was a great fit, was knowledgeable, respectful and always punctual. I would highly recommend using Calgary Tutoring Centre as this is a place that cares about the success of our children."
"I would like to say we are lucky to use Calgary Tutoring Center. David's final school mark and province exam are very good. And more important is his study capability is improved. I would like to say this high tuition fee is valuable."
"I have used the services of Calgary Tutoring Centre for the past two years for my daughter who has just graduated. She had a tutor every week for Math 20/30/31 and Physics 30. The tutors that came over to the house were very professional and thorough. They covered topics that she was currently studying or ones that she felt she needed to work on. My daughter was well prepared for her tests and more importantly for her diploma exams. She finished the year on the honor roll and was accepted to all of the Universities she applied to."
"There are several key attributes to describe The Calgary Tutoring Centre, but the three that come to mind are --- Professional, trustworthy and competent. In 2007, we contracted the services of the Calgary Tutoring Centre and our main purpose was to provide our daughter with the additional coaching that she wanted outside of the classroom. Our daughter is a peak performer and is active in school and in sports. As a peak performer, she needs to manage her schedule and one of the ways in which she does this, is through additional coaching from a tutor. The results she achieved in 2007 by working with a private tutor were outstanding. She achieved a high grade, learned new study tips and tricks and gained confidence.
Our experiences with the Calgary Tutoring Centre were so favorable that we now include them in our school budget. The centre provides the skilled professionals, flexibility and one-on-one coaching that works for our daughter. When we set out on this partnership with the Calgary Tutoring Centre, we wanted to achieve the following outcomes:
- Clear understanding of math dynamics
- Learn new ways to approach problems
- Improve her study habits
- Gain confidence in approaching tests
We are confident that we have achieved the above four objectives. The time and investment has been well spent.
If you're child is seeking assistance in any subject and wants to improve their grade or learn new study habits, then I would highly recommend you contact the Calgary Tutoring Centre."
"My son was struggling with Math 30. I had tried a tutor in the past, with little or no results, so I was reluctant to try again. I searched in the phone book and found Calgary Tutoring Centre. I am very happy that I did because the differences between Calgary Tutoring Centre and other tutors were apparent right away. The tutor that they assigned to my son was very knowledgeable and friendly. My son had instant respect for him and could relate to him because they were close in age. My son's tutor was professional, punctual, very flexible and knowledgeable in both Math and Chemistry. I was so pleased, that I decided to also get a tutor for my daughter from Calgary Tutoring Centre. It was important to me to provide my children with every chance for success and I would recommend Calgary Tutoring Centre to anyone needing academic assistance."
"Charles was an amazing tutor. Rachel was almost going to drop Chemistry 30 and because of Charles help she attained an 80% on the diploma exam. We have recommended Calgary Tutoring to a few people already and will continue to do so."
"I have been consistently pleased with the support that Calgary Tutoring Centre has provided both my son and daughter over the years. Their tutors are reliable, pleasant and highly knowledgeable in their appropriate subject areas. All tutors have helped both my kids stay on the honour role during their high school years. I will continue to recommend Calgary Tutoring Centre to my friends."
"The service your company has provided to my family these past 6 years has been wonderful. Both are in University and have become good, hardworking students. The tutoring gave them confidence they very much needed. I have and will continue to recommend your service to any parent who has a child in the school system, struggling or not."
"The Calgary Tutoring Centre has been a great asset to us. My son Nathan has worked with your tutor for the past two years. Nathan says that your tutor has made it easier for him to understand math concepts. Nathan finds his tutor easy to talk to and enjoys working with him. Tutoring has helped our son gain confidence, improve his math skills, and improve his grades. I highly recommend Calgary Tutoring Centre."
"Calgary Tutoring Centre was very helpful to us when our son needed help with his Math 30 school work. They replied to my needs promptly if there was ever an issue. The tutor that they provided was a very intelligent young man. My son could relate to the tutor easily because he was so near in age to him. The tutor and the centre were very open to changes that we needed to make to the schedule and were very organized in all aspects. I would recommend this centre to anyone needing help for their youth needing school assistance."
"We found out about Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd. via the internet. We were looking for a program that would be individualized to our son's needs. When we met Maria the first time, she exuded enthusiasm and passion for math, at set about finding out what Scott needed help with. She was flexible in her approach, and was very patient with him. "Maria helped me with more than just my math problem. She helped me with organization. She made me smarter." Scott's math overall mark at the end of grade nine was a B, thanks to the A he was able to achieve on his math final/provincial exam. We look forward to working with Maria again for grade 10 math."

"We found Alex to be very professional, accommodating and sensitive to our child's learning needs. We had a very good experience with the Chemistry 20 IB tutor that Alex provided for our son. Not only was the tutor very knowledgeable but our son found the tutoring sessions very enjoyable. We won't hesitate to seek Alex's services again as our son continues his high school education."
"The Calgary Tutoring Center provided an invaluable tutoring service for my son in Biology 20 and Physics 20. They helped him keep his grades at a high level (Bio in the 80s and Physics in mid-70s) and it was extremely useful to have an "expert" available for one-to-one tutoring. The tutors were very knowledgeable in their subject areas and developed in instant rapport with my son. I appreciated their flexibility in scheduling tutoring time and their flexibility in subject unit topics. My son felt he could ask them about any unit in the course, at any time, regardless of the current unit. We will continue with the Calgary Tutoring Center for all three sciences for his Grade 12 year."
"Our daughter was not very keen to have a math tutor but recognized that she needed help if she was going to successfully complete Pure Math 20. I had picked up the Calgary Tutoring Centre flyer just out of curiosity earlier in the year and when she indicated an interest, quickly called and set up an appointment. She quickly realized that the tutoring made her math classes less frustrating and helped her to achieve much better marks in her quizzes and tests. Her tutor was very professional but friendly and related very well to our daughter and being a teenager. Her marks went from 63 in Pure Math 10 to getting an 88 on the Pure Math 20 Final. She has gone from believing that she wasn't "good" at math to feeling very successful. We have been very pleased with the results and would be quite pleased if she had tutors for some of her other classes, as well. Thanks to Alex and the Calgary Tutoring Centre!"
"Our daughter was really struggling this year in French Math 30. She started her sessions with Calgary Tutoring and immediately her stress diminished . She new that she was being instructed by someone she understood and who taught according to her learning style. Her marks went up and her frustration with Math was greatly reduced. She will be resuming her sessions in the fall and we have also enrolled our son. He is entering grade nine and his marks in math slipped significantly last Spring as the material got more difficult. We are confident his tutoring sessions will be helpful. Calgary Tutoring is a very professional organization. Communication between the tutor and I was ongoing. They were accommodating to our daughter's extra curricular schedule and her exam schedule."
"In math I found it hard to concentrate and to obtain a higher level of understanding. Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd. taught me that just knowing the material is not enough. I was taught that understanding the concepts and applying them are important to achieve better grades. This methodology is what has brought my mark up to what I can be proud of. My tutor was very easy to work with and was on a down to earth level with me and it allowed me to build a good rapport and trust towards him."
"Alex Azarnousch's Tutoring Centre has provided two of our children with excellent math tutoring over the past two years. The tutors who have helped our children in Math 10, 11 and 12 have been competent, flexible, reliable, supportive and caring. Alex consistently communicates well with us and he has been thoughtful and fair in all of our dealings with him. We highly recommend his Tutoring Centre."
"Our son's marks went up from 40's to 60's and then 80% on his Pure Math 20 final exam with the guidance of Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd. last year. We're back for Pure Math 30 because Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd. is the best! They have been a real mentor and encouragement to our son."
"Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd. was a big help in aiding my daughter with her reading. I needed someone outside the home and I came across the Calgary Tutoring Centre on the internet. I had tried everything else and thought, why not give it a try. When I phoned, right away I knew it would be a good idea because Alex was very honest, nice, and very informative. He answered all my questions and put me at ease. My daughters' tutor was very nice, liked kids, got along wonderful with her, and was very patient with her. It was a big help to my daughter, as she did reach a reading goal in school. I recommend the Calgary Tutoring Centre to anyone who needs help. When and if I need a tutor for my kids, I will not hesitate to call them."
"I am pleased to provide a very high recommendation for the Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd. Alex tutored my son in Math 20 Pure. On many occasions, he went beyond the call of duty in providing extra tutoring services on short notice just before tests and exams. He clearly cares about his students and strives to his utmost to prepare the students for successful completion of their course. He is encouraging and positive in his approach and quickly gains the student's confidence. He clearly knows his material inside out and has an effective teaching method. My daughter also used Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd. Services for her first year Chemistry course at the University of Calgary. The tutor was very friendly and I often heard them laughing over Chemistry problems. Who would have thought a tutor could make learning Chemistry so enjoyable! I do not hesitate to recommend Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd. Services. High standards for service and excellence in tutoring have been set and met. Our family will be using their service again this year."
"Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd. is a first class organization! I feel qualified to say this because my sons grade improved by almost 20% in Pure Math. He was always treated with kindness and respect and the Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd. was always accommodating to his schedule. As a result of the overcrowded classrooms these days, he felt comfortable with the in-home learning environment. I found the staff to be highly professional, knowledgeable and skilful in their teaching style. In addition, the encouraging approach and the mentorship my son felt was incredible. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend the Calgary Tutoring Centre to anyone."
"It is with genuine appreciation our family highly recommends Calgary Tutoring Centre.

I have passed on this information to several friends, and am happy to report that they also would not hesitate to recommend you. Thank you so much for everything, and our family looks forward to another year with you."
"With any employer, the two principal features I look for are flexibility and openness. Alex and the Calgary Tutoring Centre surpassed my expectations in both of these regards; the scheduling is practical and convenient, and the ease of communication makes for an enjoyable working relationship. Beyond simply ensuring a pleasant work environment, these aspects also enhance client-tutor relations, allowing more focus on the student and their specific academic needs. Without hesitation I would recommend the Calgary Tutoring Centre to both potential tutors and clients. Tutors are guaranteed a gratifying, rewarding position, and clients can count on professional, helpful service."
Working for the Calgary Tutoring Center has been a pleasure. The service itself is conducted and managed effectively and efficiently. Since I started with the company I have felt right at home. I have been set up with all types of students which has not only been a fun and interesting process, but it has also allowed me to develop my communications and teaching skills. The students I have tutored have all been an absolute pleasure to work with, and the families have all been very nice. I would recommend both tutors and families alike to the Calgary Tutoring Center, it is an excellent program and will not only boost the student's marks, but provide a good overall experience for both the tutor and the student.
"Working with the Calgary Tutoring Center has been an incredibly rewarding experience, the flexibility, level of commitment and incredible attention to detail really emphasize the hard work that the Calgary Tutoring Center prides itself on and upholds with great care. Working with students and their parents to design and maintain a consistently positive experience, while challenging, has been an exceptional lesson in professionalism, teaching skills, communication and motivation. Alex and CTC make the tutoring experience truly hassle-free and positive, often taking every measure to ensure both the tutor and the client receive the best experience possible. I would highly recommend the Calgary Tutoring Center to any aspiring individual with a passion for teaching and learning."
' Working for CTC has been phenomenal. I have been able to work the times I meet with students around my school schedule and I am constantly keeping my mind sharp by keeping up to date with several subjects' changing curriculums. The company itself is managed spectacularly, as whenever there is conflict of any kind, management steps in within minutes and ensures it is resolved to the satisfaction of all parties involved. The decision I made to apply on the CTC website was probably one of the most important and successful choices that I have made during my university career."
" I have had a very rewarding experience working for the Calgary Tutoring Centre for the past 18 months. Through providing the autonomy to set my own schedule, the Calgary Tutoring Centre has allowed me to achieve a good work-life balance, and their concentration on taking care of the details â€“ client screening, contracts and billing â€“ permits me to focus all my time and effort on the challenge of helping students gain the confidence, knowledge and tools required to meet their academic goals. I have had the privilege of working with a wide variety of students through the Calgary Tutoring Centre, and have at all times felt well supported, fairly compensated and valued as a member of a team with a mandate to make a positive impact on the lives of students and their families."
"Working for the Calgary Tutoring Centre has been a very rewarding and positive experience. Alex allows us the ability to assess each individual Student which enables us to find common ground and build a solid base of knowledge. It is exhilarating to help students understand material and build their confidence. It has been a pleasure to follow my students from Grade 9 to Grade 12 and watched them grow into strong, confident, and mature young adults."
" My time with the Calgary Tutoring Centre has been highly rewarding in a number of ways. It has been incredibly satisfying to see students flourish after our sessions together; in my opinion, one on one sessions allow students to truly improve and grow in their studies. Furthermore, I have found Alex to be very supportive of his tutors. Not only is he very professional, but I have found that he always makes himself available during the rare time that there are any questions or issues that arise on the job."
" Working for Calgary Tutoring Centre is a rewarding and accommodating part time job. My tutoring schedule is completely determined by me and really compliments my life as a busy student. I never feel like I'm working when I'm tutoring. The students benefit from the one on one interaction, and I benefit when I see that my time and patience has given them confidence in subjects they previously disliked or didn't understand. Every student learns differently, which has taught me to think on my feet and constantly change my teaching methods. The skills that I am learning are essential for my future career as a teacher, and I am grateful for the opportunity to work for Calgary Tutoring Centre."
" I have had the opportunity to be part of many great students' lives. Seeing them develop and progress was really satisfying and inspiring. As for Calgary Tutoring Centre, I appreciate the flexibility and the hands off management style. With a full time job, and a young family, those are very important to me. I would highly recommend Calgary Tutoring Centre to anyone, students or tutors."
"During my three years with the Calgary Tutoring Centre, I enjoyed the challenge of working with students across a wide age range and assisting them with their academic studies. Having an opportunity to watch these young students expand their knowledge base and build upon their confidence levels in academic subjects they initially struggled with proved to be a very unique and rewarding experience. I highly recommend the Calgary Tutoring Centre to anyone interested in working with children and adolescents, especially those with a disposition towards teaching."
"I appreciate the opportunity I have had in working with the Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd. I found it extremely rewarding as tutoring gave students the one on one learning experience that can sometimes fall short in a classroom setting. By simply breaking down the material it was wonderful to watch how quickly students understood and how fast they gained confidence about not only themselves, but their academics as well. I found that tutoring taught me how to take different approaches when working with students who have different learning styles. Moreover, I found it gratifying that I was able to share my knowledge and skills with others. Overall, I enjoyed working with the Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd. as it not only provided an excellent opportunity to work with students, but I found it to be flexible and a perfect fit for both my busy schedule and the students as well."
" It has been a pleasure teaching for the Calgary Tutoring Centre. CTC gave me the opportunity to work with many different people in a safe and fun environment. Striving towards greater knowledge with students and learning together has been an amazing experience. "
"I have been working with Calgary Tutoring Centre for almost 2 years and it has been very positive. They are very well organized. The paperwork from my end is easy and straightforward. The students are wonderful, I enjoy working with them! "
"Tutoring with the Calgary Tutoring Centre has been a very rewarding experience. It is great to see a student's face light up when they finally understand a concept that they've been struggling with. The one-on-one tutoring sessions make it easy to focus on what each student is having trouble with. I absolutely loved it when my students saved their tests or homework to show me how well they have been doing in school. To see my students gain confidence in their knowledge and ability to learn was the greatest reward. I will miss all of my students and wish them all best of luck with the next chapter of their lives!
"I have enjoyed working with every student that I have had the opportunity to help. Working one on one with students has allowed me to gain insight into the different ways students interpret the same material. I think this will be invaluable for my future as a teacher."
"In my time working with Calgary Tutoring Center I have seen the following; very professional tutor/client relationships, open and welcoming lines of communication, and a superior tutoring experience for students."
"Since joining Calgary Tutoring Centre, I have had the excellent opportunity of working with some truly great people and watching them grow intellectually is very fulfilling. The flexibility of tutoring is excellent for any individual looking for part time work; particularly students as tutoring will not only benefit your debt load but likely increase your grades as well through the teaching of others. I would highly recommended working for Calgary Tutoring Centre."
"I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Calgary Tutoring Centre for the past 2 years. Not only has the experience been greatly beneficial for my career in teaching and working with youth but it has also been rewarding to have the opportunity to work with youth on a one to one basis and help them achieve their academic goals. I have found Calgary Tutoring Centre to be a positive, uplifting organization to be a part of and have always felt supported and encouraged. The youth I have worked with have been fantastic individuals who have been a pleasure to work with. Being able to help and watch a young person meet academic goals that they have previously struggled with is rewarding in itself and it has been a pleasure to be a part of that. Calgary Tutoring Centre has allowed me to obtain part time employment while pursuing my own academic interests. The scheduling with Calgary Tutoring Centre has always been flexible and easy to fit into my already busy schedule. As Calgary Tutoring Centre also prides itself on making sure all students get the amount of help and aid they need, CTC has been very flexible on how many students I can take each semester. Overall working the Calgary Tutoring Centre has been a pleasure and a very rewarding experience. I look forward to continuing my work as a tutor with CTC now and in the future."
"Being a tutor at the Calgary Tutoring Centre this past year has been both challenging and rewarding. I was first attracted to the job because as a University student it provided an opportunity to both choose my own hours and help finance my education. From my experience as a tutor I have gained invaluable communication and leadership skills that will help me throughout the rest of my life in my career as a veterinarian as well as my personal life. Since every student learns differently the same tactics don't always work and I found myself continuously having to readjust my teaching style to fit the individual student's needs; just knowing the material is not good enough. Being a tutor has forced me to be more creative, flexible and knowledgeable about the subject matter. The most rewarding aspect of the job is seeing the students improve and become more confident in their own abilities. I was very proud when one of my Chemistry 30 students received an award in chemistry for improvement, it showed that my efforts were well worth it and greatly appreciated. A great aspect of working through the Calgary Tutoring Centre and Alex was that I did not have to worry about finding clients and dealing with money issues. Alex was always available if any issues arose and did an astounding job matching tutors with students both with subjects, grade level and geographical location. It was also nice to have a part time job where I could work a couple hours a night instead of working a longer shift that would detract from my own studying and personal life. I would recommend the Calgary Tutoring Centre for anybody looking for an intellectually engaging, emotionally satisfying part time job while attending school or otherwise."
"My experience as a tutor with the Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd. has been fantastic, and I trully wish I had started this job earlier in my university career. Watching them develop and strive academically has really been one of the most unique and rewarding experiences for me. I have been able to build a bond with my students throughout the year, helping them grow individually and intellectually. Yet the job as a tutor does not only ecompass the students' development. I learned a lot as a tutor about general education, what it is like to work with kids and teenagers, all the while learning to shape my teaching methods in order to meet the students' personal needs. Support and professional advice was always given to me when I needed it most, making this particular type of work much more enjoyable than any other. The parents and students are great to work with, which results in a flexible working schedule and friendly environment. From a tutor's perspective, the management at the crux of the Calgary Tutoring Centre is great; it is timely, respectful, understanding and efficient. If anyone is still sitting on the fence, wondering whether this is the right job for them, I would, without any hesitation, recommend the Calgary Tutoring Centre as an employer."
"Working with the Calgary Tutoring Centre has been a pleasure. It is an opportune job for University students, as the hours are extremely flexible, allowing the clients and tutors to organize a schedule that works for both of them. The students I have worked with have taught me as much as I have taught them, in organizational, teaching, and time management skills. I find this work stimulating and rewarding, and find Alex very understanding of busy schedules and other life pressures. Alex takes great care in matching students and tutors that are compatible and close geographically. I have enjoyed my time working as a tutor with the CTC, and will continue to do so in the future."
"Working for the Calgary Tutoring Centre for the past three years has been an extremely rewarding experience. The one-on-one time with students allows for personalization of material, focusing attention on concepts that need revisiting, which allows you to see the academic growth in the students. Schedule flexibility is a huge advantage of tutoring, and Alex does a great job of matching students with tutors for both subject and location. I would recommend working for the CTC to anyone interested in a gratifying, no hassle part-time job."
"I had a wonderful experience working with Calgary Tutoring Centre. The students were absolutely amazing, and I hope that they learned as much from me as I learned from them. The one on one teaching experience was amazing, and it really allowed for students to progress towards their overall academic goals."
"In my three years with the Calgary Tutoring Centre I have thoroughly enjoyed performing as a tutor to highschool, university and senior level students. Working with the Calgary Tutoring Centre has afforded me the opportunity to educate and interact with gracious people, who possess interesting and inquisitive minds. I would not say that this is always an easy job, in fact, many times it has required considerable preparation and dedication to connect with students who are facing great challenges. However, it is these times, that have made this the most rewarding job I have performed - the opportunity to change a student's relationship with the material, and with learning in general, is profoundly satisfying. It can be humbling to develop as a tutor, but being with the Calgary Tutoring Centre will give you a chance to learn the trade in a stable and supportive environment."
"Working as a tutor for Calgary Tutoring Centre was an incredibly rewarding experience.
Watching students progress through the curriculum, gain confidence, and overcome their academic frustration was extremely gratifying. Many students find themselves overwhelmed by the material and have developed a fear and dislike of learning itself, anticipating only negative results from their efforts. By speaking to the individual interests and leanings of the student themselves, as well as introducing deeper connections between the material and other disciplines, I found that students gained a genuine interest in their studies and in the pursuit of knowledge in general.
Teaching students time management techniques, improved study skills, and alternative methods to approaching their tests and assignments proved as invaluable as teaching the material itself. As Tyron Edwards once stated, The great end of education is to discipline rather than to furnish the mind; to train it to the use of its own powers rather than to fill it with the accumulation of others.
As a tutor, the advantages to working with Calgary Tutoring Centre were numerous. The flexibility to arrange my sessions with students according to both of our schedules was extremely important to me as a busy student myself, and I was very grateful to have the opportunity to work a part-time job where I felt I was making a difference and contributing to the success of others. The management at CTC was extremely professional and helpful, and I felt comfortable with the fact that I was able to choose the number of students I tutored over a given period of time, thereby ensuring I was able manage all my commitments effectively.
Overall, my experience working with Calgary Tutoring Centre was an extremely positive one, and I find myself recommending the company to others, both potential tutors and struggling students. Teaching is a privilege, and my experience as a tutor gave me a deep respect and appreciation for the teachers who fostered within me the love of knowledge, and the ability to share what I have been taught. It was a very meaningful experience, and I would thoroughly enjoy working for CTC once again should the opportunity arise."
"My time as a tutor with Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd. has only been rewarding. I've gained valuable experience as a teacher, which has helped me in my graduate studies. Management has always been supportive and helpful. My teaching could be done without the hassles of finding clients on my own, or having to discuss money issues directly with clients. This allowed tutoring to be a very enjoyable experience, and I would recommend it to anyone as a part time job."
"I thoroughly enjoyed my experience as a tutor with Calgary Tutoring Centre. Working with students is a very involved and rewarding experience and offers many challenges that come with each individual. Perhaps the most appealing part of this position was the flexibility of the schedule, as it was purely up to the student and tutor. The management of the company was very efficient and offered a lot of independence for the employees. I confidently recommend Calgary Tutoring Centre to both students and tutors for a rewarding experience."
"I had the pleasure of working with Alex and the Calgary Tutoring Company Ltd. for two years, during which time I was able to work with some great students. It was incredibly rewarding to watch them gain confidence in their work and achieve their academic goals. At the same time, I really enjoyed the flexibility of being a tutor - I was in charge of my own schedule, allowing me to continue with my own studies while having the opportunity to help other students with their coursework."
"As a student teacher, my experience with the Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd has been extremely rewarding. I've been able to gain valuable experience in individualized instruction through a variety of grade levels, and have met some great kids in the process. I'm able to negotiate my own hours with the clients directly, and management is always attentive to any questions or concerns I might have. It's a great casual job."
"Working with the Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd. has been a wonderful experience all around. The best part is that it is up to both the students and the tutors to make a schedule that works. As a tutor that often takes on a lot of students as well as being busy with other aspects of life I enjoyed this flexibility. The management at the Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd. is efficient, friendly, and understanding. Not only do they do their best to match students to a tutor that works well but they help tutors find the best way to teach their students. I've worked at the Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd. throughout half of my university career and I've found it to be extremely rewarding."
"I am incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to work for the Calgary Tutoring Centre over the last two years, as it has challenged me to grow into a more creative and adaptable person. Alex has provided a supportive work environment and has always been understanding of my need for a flexible schedule. His interactions with tutors and clients are indicative of his professionalism."
"Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd is a pleasure to work for; Alex takes a great role in providing tutors with an opportunity to share their skills with clients. CTC has provided me with clients close to my home as well as University, and works to find the right balance for the my schedule. As means for gaining new experience tutoring, or with experience in teaching students, CTC is perfect means for any tutor to find working success. Tutoring through Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd. is fun, engaging and provides me as a tutor with experience and challenges that enhance my skills as well as my students. Its a pleasure working through CTC."
"I have been a tutor with the Calgary Tutoring Centre for almost four years. It has been a pleasure working with the management and the students alike. Each student offers new challenges as they all have different approaches to problem solving. It is very rewarding to help them and watch them improve. I hope to continue working for the Calgary Tutoring Centre for years to come."
"Tutoring with CTC has become a very enjoyable experience for me. CTC organizes the students for me, so all I have to do is teach. The best part of my tutoring experience has been helping the students expand their knowledge. Giving students the confidence to tackle Math and Science is very gratifying. I have been fortunate enough to retain students through different subjects as they progress through school. Being involved in their diverse educational growth makes tutoring a hobby for me, as opposed to a job."
"Working with Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd. has been such a positive experience. I am rewarded everyday when I help students understand material that was once difficult to them. Many students can feel discouraged because they are not receiving the marks they would like to. The classroom environment needs to cater to 20 to 30 students at a time. Since every child is different, the way they are taught in the classroom may not always be the best for that individual student. It is always an exciting challenge, when meeting new students, to figure out which way they will learn best. I feel so much joy in knowing that I have helped students on their road to success.
As a student myself, it is nice knowing that I can do what I love to do with such flexible hours. Since it is important that every student gets all the attention they deserve, Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd. has been very accommodating in that I can take as many students as I am comfortable with in any given semester."
"I really enjoy the opportunity to work one on one with students and watch them progress throughout the school year. Not only do I feel positive about facilitating learning, I also get to build on my communication skills and co-ordinate my own appointments."
"I have worked for Calgary tutoring centre for two years which was during my third and fourth of university and I should say that it was the best job that I could have had as the schedule was very flexible and suiting my heavy course work. It was really an exciting and fun experience and Alex was extremely helpful. I would highly recommend to become a member of Calgary Tutoring Centre if you enjoy teaching and would like to make your own work schedule."
"I had worked as a tutor independently for roughly 2 years before the Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd. What I disliked about tutoring independently was dealing with payment and fielding students for their suitability. The CTC removed both of these issues, allowing me to do what I enjoyed without worrying about these administrative nuisances. In addition, I didn't need to sacrifice my independence - I was free to work out a schedule with the families directly such that the sessions accommodated both me and the student. As a full-time university student, I cannot overstate the importance of that kind of flexibility. I would highly recommend the Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd. to any tutor looking for a great, rewarding part-time job. I was provided with good students, I was compensated fairly, I had excellent support from Alex and I was treated professionally; this combination is difficult to find in the tutoring industry."
"I have worked with Alex at the Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd. for a number of years and I have taught many students at different ages (from elementary to college years). I have found that consistency with a program is the key to building lasting habits. When the students apply themselves the results are not limited to increasing test scores, but increased confidence levels as well. There are so many benefits to having one-on-one tutoring such as confidence building, study habits, and just showing the students that learning can be fun. Not only do the students improve their grades, but they can take the knowledge and apply it to their whole academic career. I have recommended, and will continue recommending the Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd. to parents."
"I've enjoyed tutoring for the Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd. for over a year now and feel it is a great opportunity for young people to not only keep up on their education skills but also to help others to learn effectively in a comfortable setting. The hours are very flexible, as you make your own schedule. Being flexible is a serious concern for most students as we often have to juggle several activities simultaneously throughout the school year. It is rewarding work because you get to see your students improve academically as you build a solid rapport with each and every one of them. I highly recommend this type of work to students who have a busy schedule, are motivated and looking to earn good money."
"My employment with Calgary Tutoring Centre as a tutor was an all-around excellent experience. Working with the students was fun, challenging, and fulfilling. The hours were flexible and minimal, while still bringing in a decent steady income. It also allowed me to focus primarily on my studies. I would recommend tutoring especially to university students looking for a gratifying position, without a huge time commitment and with good wages."
"My time as a tutor with the Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd. was a very positive experience. Not only did it offer me a flexible, well-paid job while I was in university, but it also taught me teaching skills that I know use in my career as a classroom teacher. I would recommend this job to any university student looking for a fun, and engaging part-time job."
"Working for the Calgary Tutoring Center Ltd. allowed for great flexibility with appointment scheduling and having students located within the vicinity of my house assured that travel time was within reason. Seeing the students succeed in part due to one's efforts made this job very rewarding."
"I enjoy working as a tutor with the Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd. as they do their best to match students with the right tutor. They also provide a lot of flexibility for both the students and the tutors in finding a schedule that works for everyone. I find that this allows the tutors to personalize the tutoring experience for each individual, making sure the student benefits the most out of their time together. Although the onus is still on the student to make the most of their studying outside of being tutored, I have not had one client who did not improve their grades or confidence."
"I had a fantastic time working for the Calgary Tutoring Centre Ltd. It was a great way to impart knowledge and assist school children. I was able to work independently, and utilize a terrific support system. I would definitely recommend the Calgary Tutoring Centre to students striving for academic excellence and to those looking for a wonderful employment opportunity."
"I am very grateful I was able to work with the Calgary Tutoring Centre while I pursued my University degree. Not only were the hours ideal for myself as a student but the management from this company allowed me to have independence over my job as I created my own schedule. Tutoring allowed me to not only share my knowledge of Mathematics but I was also able to build student confidence. The job was so rewarding because I was able to see both confidence and grades increase immediately."
